Forum looks great on Apple's iPad!

Except iPad changed forum to firm it appears...

Probably my mistake.

I'm totally underwhelmed!

I like the design but I don't like Apple.

I'm afraid I would need a better reason than the Forum looking good before I change!

looks a lot better on a 24in widescreen.

Do you have a photo? I wasn't interested in the ipad till I seen the people in the States with theirs and now for some reason I am thinking about thinking about getting one, if I could afford it. A bit of 'latest gadget envy' on my part I suspect.

I will congratulate you simply because I was one of the people who thought the iPhone was a gimic..... until i bought one. I would love an iPad but simply cant justify buying one having a desktop, macbook and an iPhone.

Can I ask how is the screen for finger prints and the like?

Usually I can find at least one reason to justify buying the latest device, but on this occasion I can't think of any.

It's an interesting device - but the question is Do we need a third computing device, on top of phone and laptop/PC?

I can see immediate benefits of it as a large digital photo frame you can pass around for photos and videos.

You'd really need the stand for it for prolonged use.

As with the iPhone it's the dedicated apps that will make the iPad both useful and highly desirable rather than just a luxury item.
